Following on from ‘Major Script Project’ the previous semester, students undertake to write subsequent drafts of their script.

Students are expected to submit as a minimum a completed second draft long form script; (most likely a feature film script) plus accompanying short documents, or television script(s) of equivalent length plus a ‘Bible’.

Students attend regular small group script tutorials where work in progress will be discussed/presented and feedback given by tutor and peers. Students also undertake complimentary craft and industry classes during the semester.

Students may, on their own initiative, organise script readings and/or actor workshops for script development and feedback purposes.

Intended learning outcomes

This subject will enable students to:
• complete a second draft (minimum) long form script to a professional standard;
• gain higher level understanding of key elements of the craft of screenwriting;
• further develop script analysis and feedback skills;
• gain insight into the process of drafting and redrafting long form scripts.
